The Night James Brown Saved Boston - James Brown(2 DVD)
April 5th 1968 - the morning after one of the most catastrophic moments in American history: the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. America’s inner cities are imploding and in Boston there is a fragile peace…
The Mayor of Boston is about to cancel a long-scheduled James Brown concert to avoid confrontation - a potentially incendiary move… but after warnings he has a change of heart and asks Is there something James Brown can do to help?”
Directed by award-winning writer-producer David Leaf, The Night James Brown Saved Boston tells the story of that amazing night - rarely seen footage of the Godfather of Soul’s concert plus personal reminiscences from those in attendance.
Second disc includes the concert in its entirety – James Brown in his absolute prime!
